Indonesia student association (Persatuan Pelajar Indonesia—PPI), also take part in this event. We offer 5 Indonesian cuisines including jasmine tea, pastel, nasi goreng, martabak gulai, and pisang aroma. All of these items are halal foods. I will give a brief review for some menu. Nasi goreng may be the most famous food. Made of fried rice and special flavor, this menu undeniably pampers your tongue, maknyus deh...!. Furthermore, martabak gulai also provides different taste. Santan, coconut “milk”, is the major ingredient which presents satisfying taste, which is enriched by Indonesian spices to form a delicious flavor, nendang banget!.

Participating in Hokudaisai has a lot of desirable side effects. First, food may represent the country. Indonesia is archipelago country that consists of various tribes. Each has the traditional recipes that may significantly different. It is reported that around 5.350 traditional recipes are in Indonesia. Second, IFF is a simple way to introduce Indonesian culture since food and culture has a close connection.
Let’s come to our tent and enjoy IFF!
